Folk Medicine - D. C. Jarvis In Vermont, accepting Nature’s well-worked-out plan for good health and freedom from disease as observed in animals, people simply follow the plan. Jarvis. Vermont folk medicine has much to give those who reject as inevitable the specter of physical impairment and weakening, and who prefer instead to plan to be strong, active, and free from disease to the very end of their days. In Vermont, accepting Nature’s well-worked-out plan for good health and freedom from disease as observed in animals, people simply follow the plan, not trying continually to revise it in accordance with some whim of their own. Thus they carry over into adult life instincts and habits from their childhood.

Apple cider vinegar (ACV) became well known in the . in the late 1950s, when it was promoted in the best-selling book Folk Medicine: A Vermont Doctor’s Guide to Good Health by D. During the alternative medicine boom of recent years, apple cider vinegar and apple cider vinegar pills have become a popular dietary supplement.

It’s the only way apple cider vinegar should be consumed.

Descriptions of natural remedies for a variety of common human and domestic-animal ailments are supplemented by bits of New England folk wisdom
  • In 1988 my Mom could not sit, feed herself, or function in a multitude of ways. The crazy thing was this all occured within a 30 day stretch of time. She was diagnosed w/severe arthritis & put on heavy meds. They gave her some relief but that is all. I took out every book in the county library determined to find a cure. After researching through many, many books I came across this little gem. I will tell you that I immediately started my mother on apple cider vinegar, honey, and water. When we returned for her first revisit to her rhumetologist there was no swelling, or outward appearances of her ever having had arthritis. He had us go to the lab for bloodwork, and called us within a couple of days. So back we went, only for him to tell us that there were no longer any indications of the arthritis, and had he not examined her himself initially he would swear that we got the wrong lab work. My Mom passed away in 2009 and never had another day of arthritic pain. Not only that, but her severe struggles with phlegm disappeared also. These are a few of the things I learned from this book. This doctor should be lauded for his years of searching for the reason why a whole area of the US is/was arthritis free; that's right, no arthritis in the populace for over a decade. Do yourself a favor & read this gem.

  • Dr. Jarvis offers clear explanations of New England home remedies. Folk medicine is something
    I study along with many other types of natural, home treatments and remedies.

    If you like the topic, you may enjoy this little book as much as I did

  • just skipping through I like the content as expected but wasn't aware of be getting an original copy. pages have some dry rot and spots on the pages. I purchased this in what was advertised "very good" condition. not pleased with the condition and will have to return for a more recent print.

  • Nor exactly what I thought it would be, but there is some useful information, just not as much as I would have liked. It is more of a diary of STUDIES of Vermont medical history

  • This is a very interesting book. One of the intriguing things mentioned in the book is that honey is a heart healty sweetener! I have been trying to find the best sweetener for coffee, etc. for a long time and now I am using honey and it works just fine.

    This book has a lot of good, old fashioned tips for healthy living.

  • Anyone who wants to be healthy and use a simple way to help themselves.. should have this book.. It is helpful for man or beast..

  • I heard about this book through my doctor. Before reading this book, I had read the great benefits of apple cider vinegar. I started regularly drinking it every morning as well as using it on my skin, and have noticed a difference. This book was written in the 50's, but has a lot of interesting points about ACV uses.

  • Absolute wonderful book lots of good information.
